Turntable
& HiFi
System

A suite of vintage and DIY analogue audio equipment 

Overview:

​Refurbishing this turntable was my entry point into design

After the completion of the project, I recognized that I wouldn't be happy unless some aspect of the process I just experienced were part of my life

Following this, I applied to grad school

Skills:

High Fidelity Audio

Electronics

Woodworking

Thorens TD 145

Plinth: reconstructed with Bolivian Rosewood and Corian finished with Waterlox

Preamp uses this signal to amplify the signal from the phono cartridge hundreds of times
